Purposeful Bristol businesses, charities and social enterprises can find out more about place-based impact investment and how it can help tackle local issues and build a thriving regional economy at an event next week.

Hosted by Bristol & Bath Regional Capital (BBRC), the free event takes place on Thursday, 3 November, from 7pm at Lockleaze Sports Centre.

It will include a range of informative short presentations, providing attendees with first-hand experience and food for thought on impact investment in action. 

The BBRC team will also talk about plans to develop new funds of £50m to 100m to invest in impactful businesses accelerating the route to net zero.

Alongside the talks, attendees can explore a marketplace of exhibitors, featuring some of BBRC’s investees, including:

  • Bristol food brand Yumello, which will showcase its award-winning vegan nut butters
  • Fashion industry disruptor Amschela, which will display its range of sustainable and affordable luxury handbags
  • Big Issue eBikes, which will highlight its e-bikes and new corporate e-bike scheme for staff
  • GenieConnect digital companion and the Autonome app will be demonstrated, showing how they are helping improve the lives of vulnerable people.

The BBRC team will also be on hand to talk to potential investees and investors.

BBRC was set up in 2015 as the region’s first home-grown, place-based impact investor aiming to transform the way finance works and deliver meaningful solutions that have a lasting impact on peoples’ lives.
